Rhetorical and Literary Analysis Devices and Strategies
Rhetorical and Literary Analysis Devices and Strategies STYLE generally style is the author s voice/imprint that which makes his writing unique. It can be urbane, formal, stiff, light, didactic, philosophical, whimsical, pompous etc. Style is defined by considering diction, syntax, tone, point of view, structure, imagery, literary devices, and selection of detail. In analyzing prose, you must identify and comment on the purpose and effectiveness of the author s choices. You must always include examples from the selection to illustrate (words, phrases, line # s etc.). DICTION author s word choice intended to convey a certain effect Abstract Detached Hyperbolic Old-fashioned Scientific Alliterative Dialect Idiomatic Onomatopoetic Sensuous Archaic Emotional Informal Ordinary Simple Artificial Esoteric Insipid Pedantic Slang Assonance Euphemistic Ironic Picturesque Soft Bombastic Euphonious Jargon Philosophical Stiff Cacophonous Evocative Learned Plain Symbolic Cliché Exact Light Poetic Trite Colloquial Feminine Literal Polysyllabic Urbane Concrete Figurative Masculine Pompous Vulgar Connotative Formal Monosyllabic Precise Whimsical Crisp Grotesque Moralistic Pretentious Cultured Harsh Obscure Provincial Denotative Homespun Obtuse Scholarly STRUCTURE: (organization) (rhetorical structure) Modes: argumentation, cause/effect, classification, compare/contrast, definition, exposition, narration, process analysis Genre: prose, short story, poetry, novel, drama, sermon, editorial, satire, parody, journal, letter, legal brief, speech, etc. Arrangement: chronological, flashbacks, full-circle, order of importance, spatial, informal, formal, etc. (Examine the arrangement of ideas in a paragraph to see if there is evidence of any pattern or structure.) TONE: (voice, attitude) the writer s or speaker s attitude toward the subject and audience Afraid Cold Fanciful Nostalgic Sharp Allusive Complimentary Frivolous Objective Shocking Angry Condescending Giddy Peaceful Silly Apologetic Confused Happy Pitiful Somber Audacious Contemptuous Hollow Poignant Sweet Awed Cynical Horrific Proud Sympathetic Benevolent Detached Humorous Provocative Tired Bitter Didactic Irreverent Restrained Upset Black humor Distant Joking Sad Urgent Boring Dramatic Joyful Sarcastic Vexed Candid Dreamy Mock serious Seductive Vibrant Childish Exhortative Mocking Sentimental Zealous
SYNTAX: sentence structure Sentence Lengths Telegraphic shorter than 5 words Short- approximately 5 words in length Medium- approximately 18 words in length Long and involved- 30 words or more in length (How does the sentence length fit in the subject matter? What variety of length is present? How is the length effective?) Sentence Patterns Declarative (assertive) makes a statement: e.g., The king is sick. Imperative gives a command: e.g., Cure is the king. Interrogative asks a question: e.g., Is the king sick? Exclamatory provides emphasis or expresses strong emotion: e.g., The king is dead! Long live the king! Simple contains one subject and one verb (an independent clause): e.g., The singer bowed to her adoring audience. Compound contains two independent clauses joined by a coordinate conjunction by a semicolon: e.g., The singer bowed to the audience but she sang no encores. Complex contains an independent clause and one or more subordinate (dependent) clauses: e.g., Because the singer was tired, she went straight to bed after the concert. Compound/Complex contains two or more principal clauses and one or more subordinate (dependent) clauses: e.g., The singer bowed while the audience applauded, but she sang no encores. Sentence order: Loose sentence makes complete sense if brought to a close before the actual ending: e.g., We reached Edmonton that morning after a turbulent flight and some exciting experiences, tired and exhilarated, full of stores to tell our friends and neighbors. The sentence could end before the modifying phrases without losing its coherence. Periodic sentence makes sense only when the end of the sentence is reached: e.g., that morning, after a turbulent flight and some exciting experiences, we reached Edmonton. Balanced sentence the phrases or clauses balance each other by virtue of their likeness of structure, meaning, or length: e.g., he maketh me lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside still waters. Natural Order constructing a sentence so that the subject comes before the predicate: e.g., Oranges grow in Florida. Inverted order (sentence inversion) constructing a sentence so that the predicate comes before the subject: e.g., In Florida grow the oranges. Rhetorical/Grammatical devices: Active/passive voice the subject performs the action; the subject is acted upon; is used to suggest control or lack of control; e.g., he looked at the dead man. He was being looked at by a dead man. Appositives set off by comas, adds information Author asides usually in parentheses author intrudes on his story Ellipsis, dashes slows the motion; indicates passage of time, pauses Juxtaposition normally unassociated ideas, words, or phrases are places next to one another, creating an effect of surprise and wit, e.g., The apparition of these faces in the crowd; Petals on a wet black bought. ( In a Station of the Metro by Ezra Pound). Lists and catalogues Parallel structure (parallelism) grammatical or structural similarity between sentences of parts of a sentence. It involves an arrangement of words, phrases, sentences, and paragraphs so that elements of equal importance are similarly phrased, e.g., He was walking, running, and jumping for joy. Participles ing words may denote motion, quick pace, action Repetition the deliberate use of any element of language more than once sound, word, phrase, sentence, grammatical pattern, or rhythmical pattern; for the purpose of enhancing rhythm and creating emphasis, e.g., government of the people by the people, for the people, shall not perish form the earth. Rhetorical question a question that expects no answer. It is used to draw attention to a point and is generally stronger than a direct statement; e.g., If Mr. Ferchoff is always fair, as you have said, why did he refuse to listen to Mrs. Baldwin s arguments? Sentences which interrupt breaks the rhythm in a passage
FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE: Using words or phrases in a non-literal way to create an effect Alliteration repetition of initial consonant sound of several consecutive or neighboring words: e.g., The twisting trout twinkled below. Allusion a reference to a mythological, literary, or historical person, place or thing: e.g., He met his Waterloo. Antithesis involves a direct contrast of structurally paralleled word groupings, generally for the purpose of contrast: e.g., Sink or swim. Apostrophe a form of personification in which the absent or dead are spoken to as if present: Milton! Thou shouldn t be living in this hour. Assonance the repetition of accented vowel sounds in a series of words: e.g., the words cry and side have the same vowel sound. Consonance the repetition of a consonant within a series of words to produce a harmonious effect: e.g., And each slow dusk a drawing- down of blinds. The d sound is in consonance. Flashback a scene that interrupts the action of a work to show a previous event. Foreshadowing the use of hints or clues in a narrative to suggest future action. Hyperbole a deliberate, extravagant, and often outrageous exaggeration: e.g., The shot heard round the world. It may be used for either serious or comic effect. Irony 1. Verbal irony the result of a statement saying one thing while meaning the opposite: e.g., It s easy to stop smoking; I ve done it many times. 2. Situational irony when a situation turns out differently from what one would normally expect thought often the twist is oddly appropriate: e.g., a deep sea diver drowning in a bathtub. 3. Dramatic irony occurs when a character says or does something that has more or different meanings from what he thinks it means, though the audience and/or other characters do understand the full ramifications of the speech or action: e.g., Oedipus curses the murderer of Laius, not realizing that he is himself the murderer and so is cursing himself. Metaphor a comparison without the use of like or as; usually a comparison between something that is concrete and something that is abstract: e.g., Time is money. Onomatopoeia (imitative harmony) the use of words in which the sounds seem to resemble to sounds they describe: e.g., hiss, buzz, and bang. Oxymoron a form of paradox that combines a pair of contrary terms into a single unusually expression: e.g., sweet sorrow or cold fire. Paradox when the elements of a statement contradict each other. Although the statement may appear illogical, impossible, or absurd, it turns out to have a coherent meaning that reveals a hidden truth: e.g., Much madness is divinest sense. The more you know, the more you don t know. Socrates. Personification a kind of metaphor that gives inanimate objects or abstract ideas human characteristics: e.g., The wind cried in the dark. Prosody the study of sound and rhythm in poetry Pun a play of words that are identical or similar in sound but have sharply diverse meanings. Puns can have serious as well as humorous uses: e.g., in Romeo and Juliet, Mercutio is bleeding to death and says to his friends, Ask for me tomorrow, and you shall find a grave man. Sarcasm a type of irony in which a person appears to be praising something but is actually insulting it: e.g., As I fell down the stairs headfirst, I heard her say, Look at that coordination. Sensory detail an appeal to the senses (sight, sound texture, taste, smell) Shift or turn a change in movement in a piece resulting from an epiphany, realization, or insight gained by the speaker, a character. Or the reader. Simile a comparison of two different things or ideas through the use of words like or as. It is a definitely stated comparison in which the write says one thing is like another: e.g., The warrior fought like a lion. Symbols any object, person, place, or action that has both meaning in itself and that stand for something larger than itself, such as a quality, attitude, belief, or value: e.g., the land turtle in Steinbeck s The Grapes of Wrath suggests or reflects the toughness and resilience of the migrant workers. Synecdoche (metonymy) a form of metaphor. In synecdoche, apart of something is used to signify the whole: e.g., All hands on deck. In metonymy, the name of one thing is applied to another thing with which is closely associated: e.g, I love Shakespeare. Synethesia sense mixing Understatement (meiosis, litotes) the opposite of hyperbole; a king of irony that deliberately represents something as being much less that it really is: e.g., I could probably manage to survive on a salary of two million dollars per year.
